Text Patterns

Alan Jacobs, purveyor of things literary, probably best known for his book The Narnian, has started a new blog called “Text Patterns.” He describes it as “commentary on technologies of reading, writing, research, and, well, knowledge. As these technologies change and develop, what do we lose, what do we gain, what is (fundamentally or trivially) altered? And, not least, what’s fun?”

My colleague Jeff Reimer thought his two blogs on Kindle (here and here) were especially worth a look. They offer some fresh perspectives on the strengths and weaknesses of the device.
